Ford Explorer 2021 Overview

American automotive marque Ford is one of the top car brands in the Philippines that is most preferred by Filipinos when it comes to compact and midsize SUVs. The Ford Explorer is also a premium-looking SUV just like the Expedition, which is priced under Php 3 million. The history of the Ford Explorer traces back to over 20 years since it was launched in the early 1990s. It underwent numerous changes. That includes the recently redesigned platform that transformed it into a midsize crossover from its original body type, which is a midsize SUV. Over the years, the Ford Explorer has significantly grown up and currently offers and provides more for the needs of the Filipinos who are looking for a cross-country adventure. The Ford Explorer, being a midsize crossover, features a body dimension that is locally considered one of the largest in its class.

The cabin can comfortably accommodate seven occupants with leather seating material, wide moving spaces, and cool connectivity and entertainment features. Ford Philippines offer the Ford Explorer in two engine options, namely 3.5-liter and 2.3-liter EcoBoost engines.
